Markets, medinas and Moorish mosques
A trip to Tunisia offers the chance to seek out authentic bargains and gifts while practising your haggling skills in the markets and souks – many of which can be found in the maze-like medina quarters of Tunisia’s towns and villages. Ornate mosques, rich with Moorish touches are also worth a visit.
From Saharan sands to marina chic
The closeness of the vast Saharan desert brings ample opportunity for camel treks while viewing a landscape that has remained unchanged for centuries. Alternatively, the upmarket and thoroughly modern Port El Kantaoui offers a stylish harbour packed with designer shops and elegant eateries.
Food for thought
The choice of cuisine is definitely worth an Instagram pic or two. Tunisian dining draws heavily on its rich history, and is a heady and delicious mix of North African spice, delicate French touches and a big helping of Mediterranean influences.
Then there’s Sousse. This Medieval town’s treasure-packed medina is a World Heritage site. And when you’ve had your fill of sightseeing, there’s a glut of French restaurants and patisseries to refuel in.
Up-and-coming Djerba Island
Head down country and you get the full-on desert island deal in Djerba. It’s a newbie on the holiday scene, but tipped for big things. It’s the long sandy beaches that the travel pack are most excited about, closely followed by the cobbled lanes of the Moorish capital, Houmt Souk.
